We are performing today's stick drama in remembrance of Caleb Tempus. Caleb was in our very first stick drama and many children's Christmas programs down through the years. We will always treasure the memory of his sweet smile and personality, and his willingness always to serve his church and his Lord. Please keep the youth of Zion in your prayers as each of them try to come to terms, each in their own way, with the loss of a dear friend.
